Paper Mosaic is a highly specialized form of collage. Essentially I paint with paper.
The first step is a great drawing that has been mounted on a panel and that acts as a map for the collage, think paint by numbers (remember those when you were a kid?) Then each shape on the drawing is traced creating a pattern.
Then the paper is meticulously hand cut and placed on the surface of the drawing. The Paper Mosaic emerges one piece at a time.
